 I wrote a song for Peanut, my 27 year old Cockatiel. After all this time, I am happy to have a lullaby to sing to her before bed.  I would love to be able to record and share this song with bird and animal lovers throughout the word. Peanut is a very special bird.  She calls herself a Professional Petting Bird because that is what she does all of the time.  She helps others feel better by letting them pet her.  She also enjoys her naps.  Being an older bird she naps most of time.  Favorite napping places include her hammock, her food dish, my pillow with her stuffie, and the shower.  The song I wrote is truly to honor my love for Peanut and the lyrics resonate with others that have been blessed with special animals. To learn more about peanut you can find her on Facebook or Twitter.

Oh Baby Bird (Peanut’s Lullaby)
by Nissa Newton

Oh Baby Bird, stick around a while.
There’s still so much to learn and you help me smile.
Through the sun and the rain, through happiness and pain.

When I was young, I was busy with my life.
I joined the Army and became a wife.
But you were there for me, anytime I needed you.

Life is simple for a bird it’s ’bout getting and givin’ love in return
When life gets crazy, your love saves me

Oh Baby Bird, stick around a while.
There’s still so much to learn and you help me smile.
Through the sun and the rain, through happiness and pain.

When the time comes to say goodbye,
There’ll be no lil’ birdie to catch the tears from my eyes.
But I will carry you, forever in my heart,

Oh Baby Bird, stick around a while.
There’s still so much to learn and you help me smile.
Through the sun and the rain, through happiness and pain.

Through the sun and the rain, through our happiness and pain
Oh baby bird….

Risks and challenges

Once funding is received, I will have to put finishing touches on the song, including any arranging for harmonies and additional instrumentation. Next I will need to schedule studio time to record the song and hire any additional musicians that may be needed. I am a very busy person and so my biggest obstacle is time. With funding, I will be able to devote the time necessary to the project and be able to meet my deadline January 2014. I have not recorded anything since 1991, but I feel ready to do it again and would really like to honor my special Peanut while she is still around to do so. Every day she is with us is a blessing!
